I got my speedlight in June last year and havent liked it very much at all. Mostly cos me and technology are not friends and I just dont get all the settings and how to use it properly but I am trying.
However, why have a nice piece of equipment and not learn how to use it?
So anyway my first few attempts were horrible. But I think I am improving.
Feel free to pick them to bits. They are the first ones I have taken in a while and where they are actually in focus.
Oh and for the record... husband and puppy!
SOOC except for sharpen and crop. Oh and I replaced the background in 1 & 2
Great job on getting those catchlights. It looks really good.

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
I agree, the catchlights look good, not flashy....I'm not an expert but just based on what I know so far....
good for you for learning that speedlight. where were you bouncing the flash off of?
the last pic, the eyes look overdone to me, did you touch them up in PS?
GREAT CATCHLIGHTS! I've been working w/ my speedlight for more than a year and I still struggle w/ pinlights. AWESOME JOB!!!
Do you use a diffuser cover over your speedlite, anyone? Does it help make better catchlights?
I dont have a diffuser but have thought about getting one.
I use to go nuts on eyes in PP(does everyone go through that?) but now I try to do as little as possible. Maybe I just oversharpened the whole picture a touch! I don't know!! UGH!
Still learning, just wish it wasnt taking so long!
Great job!! I cant' get catchlights that look that good with mine. Guess I need to practice more.
